Breakfast was delicious! We kept adding tables as our party grew and our server was amazing! Kept all the orders straight and stayed on top of the refills of soda and coffee.

We ordered a large pizza, they CHARGED us for an xlarge. They said appetizers were 1/2 off, so we ordered 4, but they charged us full price! Contacted the manager, never got a response.

We went here for lunch. There was only 3 other tables of guests at the time. I got my food but my husband's didn't come until I was all done with mine. He had ordered a wrap with fries, nothing fancy. We got a very weak apology from the waitress but did not receive any discount for their error. Food... More

We had lunch sitting outside facing the golf course. Good food, nice view, excellent service. There is a beautiful fountain near the patio that added a nice touch of romance.

My husband and I stop at Willy T's every once in a while. It is great fun to sit outside and have a beer while enjoying the beauty of a great golf course (Thumper Pond). We do order food from time to time...but have yet to find a menu item that we can honestly say was good enough to want... More

Nice family friendly bar and grill right off of the golf course! Have the Walleye Egg Rolls... They are AMAZING. Check for which days they have live music which adds to the experience. They also have a fantastic patio for outdoor seating. Fast, friendly service! Also, they do have a kids menu, it just isn't on their website.

Just a little more effort in the kitchen would go a long way. For example, the turkey pesto sandwich has all the ingredients, but the turkey was dry and there was so little aoli that adding more would have helped a lot. The beef on the French dip was all well done and there was not enough ajus... The house... More

The menu was redone about a year or so ago. I'm sure they have a new chef as well. So any review prior to that I wouldn't put much weight on. I ordered the taco salad. Wow!! I asked for no jalapeños, no avocados, no beans. No problem. The salad was huge, great presentation!! My husband ordered a hamburger and... More
